Reading a book you are not enjoying is a torture not to be undertaken without a reward. I leave plays at the interval, too! – Mariella Frostrup
Hello everyone! I hope you are all well! 🙂
Today, I’ll talk about signs that you are not enjoying whatever book you are reading right now. Though some of it might not be the real case, all of it always happened to me when I’m getting bored on my current read. Together with my best friend, Bea, we finalized this list and I’m thankful for her help on correcting or adding some of it.
So, here they are!
(1) Read and Forget
You finished reading half of the book but you can’t fully remember what the heck just happened on those previous chapters.
Well, this happened to me with those books I’ve read and I don’t intend on writing a review for as I don’t know what to say to it. If I really need to write one, I need to re-read it soon so it will only refresh my mind on things I’ve forgotten about the story.
(2) Feeling Plain
You do not feel any excitement while reading each word. In short, you are just reading it and whatever you read there don’t even affect you.
(3) Falling Eyelids
You are feeling sleepy.
Well, it can also be because the author’s way of writing really sounds sleepy but the story is still great. It just that, most of the time, I’m feeling sleepy when listing 1 and 2 strikes.
(4) Day Dreaming
Your mind keeps wandering out of the story you are reading.
Hehe! This only applies when you really don’t understand what you are reading to the point it’s better to daydream than to read that book.
(5) Imagination World is Closed
You can’t imagine the story and how it flows.
No matter how hard you try to re-read those sentences, you really can’t grasp what it wants you to see or to imagine.
You are easily distracted by some things like music, movies or shows on the TV, social media, FOODS (Sorry, food really distracts me!), etc.
And those are the signs that you are not enjoying reading a book. Do you agree with it? Do you have anything to add to that list? If you do have some, feel free to comment it here! 🙂
